    Thyrotropin-releasing factor, also known as thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH), is a hormone that is produced in the hypothalamus of the brain. It stimulates the production and release of thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) from the anterior pituitary gland. This process is part of the body's regulation of thyroid functions, including the production of the thyroid hormones thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3), which are essential for body metabolism and development.
